i am shattered indeed my hand are really sore i didnt have the right size screwdriver bit for the drill .so i had to screw it all by hand lol ,

i wouldnt recomend people trying to do it in one day but it just shows it can be done .

and that it doesnt have to cost a lot, plus because of how ive done it ,i can extend it but 3ft at a time by making 3 more panels lol
